So the movie version of Need For Speed is about to be unleashed in the world, and finally the official reviews are in. The verdict?
It was one of the hottest literary properties in the world, and not just because of the sex. When the rights for Fifty Shades of Grey went up for grabs, the major studios clamored for them, and they finally landed at Focus Features, an indie that’s under the Universal umbrella.

Should Fans Stop Worrying and Love the Cast? Sonny Crockett's daughter and Jax Teller don't cut it?
And you thought people were upset about Ben Affleck playing Batman. While I haven’t read the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, I’m glad the book is out there, because it’s helped keep the book business alive. The world of literature, just like everything else in this economy, has taken a hard hit, and Fifty Shades is one of those phenomenons like Harry Potter that has helped save the book biz from collapsing.
